ACPI vs. MPS in Win2k
Posted on: 02/04/2000 07:33 AM

I've had this question from a couple of people, so I figure they aren't the only ones who'd like to know.

ACPI, or Advanced Configuration and Power Initative is an industry standard for among other things, power management. If your system supports ACPI, you want to use it for Win2k. In addition to enabling hibernation, soft power, etc, it also has a few configuration details.

If your system isn't fully ACPI compliant, you may need to use MPS or MultiProcessor Specifications. I'm going to do some more digging on it because I'm curious, but for the most part, use ACPI if you can.
